    worst, in fact, than the time some youngsters in my extended family tricked me into going to see Celine Dion . . ..

    •  You poor poor bustard... (4+ / 0-)

      I don't know about it being worse, Celine Dion, damn. They punish severely at The Hague for much less than that. My most sincere condolences.

        for once and for all, as illustrated in the following recreation:

        Them: do you want to go to a Celine Dion concert?

        Me: who?

        Them: don't you mean "whom"?

        Me: who the fuck knows.

        Them: anyways, didn't you enjoy the Bruce Hornsby / Bonnie Raitt concert we took you to last year?

        Me: it wasn't awful

        Them: plus you love Suzi Quatro

        Me: who?

        Them: we saw you turning up the volume on the radio when "Stumblin In" came on . .

        Me:  I doubt that that happened, but if so, so what?

        Them: well, Celine Dion is just like Suzi Quatro.

        Me: (unenthusiastically) OK, I'll go.

        a word to any oldsters out there - believe me, Celine & Suzi are nothing alike . .. just trying to warn you if your kids / grandkids try to trick you about this.
